Just found out DS's MD/naturopath is 'going out of business'

I'm specifically looking for someone close to home in the Lakeville/Burnsville/Apple Valley area. I'm currently gathering names and will start calling around. Don't need a ped, just regular family practice is fine. Would love to go straight to naturopath or the like but insurance wont' cover and you never know when we might need a perscription or other issue (stitches, etc).

Looking for someone OK with extended BF/no vax/etc and hopefully know a thing or two about natural treatments. Thanks!

Lakeville Integrative Medicine Clinic
16372 Kenrick Ave # 100
Lakeville, MN 55044
(952) 892-6700
www.lakevilleintegrative.com

For some reason their website is down tonight...hopefully it's back up shortly. Just found this doctor (Dr. Rieb) almost a year ago. I wanted out of the Park Nicollet system where you're treated like a number. This is Dr. Rieb's own clinic. He'll try the holistic approach first and is ok with delayed or no vax. He has a great knowledge on nutrition (which is hard to find in a doctor) and different vaxes as my hubby and I are expecting our first in June. We made an appt to talk to him about Vit K, eye antibiotics, vaxes, nutrition...he spent 40 min with us talking. He's very open and honest and respects your opinion on things too. Can't say enough great things about him really. His office is right off Cty Rd 46 and 35.

Thanks, but he is the one that is closing
which is why i have a feeling I'm going to have a hard time finding someone else comparable for DS.

For economic reasons I believe. Seems docs aren't immune to the bad economy. I'm guessing that he didn't get as much business as the bigger clinics, like Fairview.

You should fill out the form to have your records xferred quickly as I think he is closing in a couple weeks.
